The professional public sees the globalization from different angles, moving within the boundaries of unconditional apologetics versus a sharp criticism of the process. Nevertheless, all definitions of globalization can be broken into the following constituent components: growing integration, world
market and mobility. Despite the scientific and technological progress achieved so far, it is increasingly surprising that one billion people in the world live on the „edge of subsistence”, or millions of people on
the earth are undernourished. This is particularly worrying, when it is more than clear that the number of poor people in the world has steadily increased. Members of the intellectual elite think that the new technological era that occurred in the 19th century led to key changes in the quality of life. But, whether and how much this data is supported, is actually the dilemma discussed in this paper. At the same time, the paper contains views on the impact of the growing technological development of the globalization process in underdeveloped countries, as well as the effects it produces.
